He was a Gold Medalist at the Eleventh Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2001, tying for first place with Olga Kern.[1] He has also won top prizes at the Busoni, Kapell, and Maria Callas Competitions, as well as at the 1998 Palm Beach Invitational and the 2000 New Orleans International. His win at the Van Cliburn Competition led to a recital debut at the Aspen Music Festival and a European tour, highlighted by appearances at summer festivals in France, Germany, Italy, and the United Kingdom.

Early life[edit]

Ioudenitch was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and is a former student of Dmitri Bashkirov at the Escuela Superior de Musica Reina Sofia in Madrid.

Ioudenitch has grown into one of the music world’s most promising young artists, exhibiting a strong individuality and musical conviction that sets him apart from other artists of his generation.
